    It is incorrect to suggest that Trump would have been happy with a 100,000 Covid-19 deaths. In fact, he was satisfied with more than a million deaths.
    During a Dec. 8 press conference regarding Operation Warp Speed, Trump drew a parallel between acquiring Covid-19 immunity through spread of the virus throughout the population and achieving immunity by having a vaccine. He noted: “You develop immunity over a period of time, and I hear we’re close to 15%. I’m hearing that, and that is terrific. That’s a very powerful vaccine in itself,” said Trump, in response to a question about how people should approach the Christmas holidays in light of the rising cases of Covid-19. He believed that if enough people gained immunity to the virus by being exposed to it, the illness would not be able to spread through the remainder of the population — a concept known as “herd immunity.”
    But experts warned that attempting to achieve herd immunity naturally, by allowing people to get sick with COVID-19, could result in more than a million deaths and potentially long-term health problems for many.
    That is why a Trump appointee, repeatedly urged top health officials to adopt a "herd immunity" approach to Covid-19 and allow millions of Americans to be infected by the virus, according to internal emails obtained by a House watchdog and shared with POLITICO. Experts disagreed and objected that flooding the population with Covid-19 infection would wreak havoc and make millions sick indiscriminately, young and old. Once the disease spread like wild fire it could not be contained or limited to just young people. The vulnerable would be swept along and the deaths would go well beyond the carnage Trump envisioned in his inaugural speech. Of course, Trump is numb to such horrendous human loss. His mind was on the thing he values most, the economy.
